The EDD Memorial Fund is offering a free adaptive baseball program with the Oneonta Outlaws on Saturday, July 18 at 3pm at Damaschke Field in Oneonta, NY.
The clinic is designed for children and young adults with any type of disability. No prior sports experience is necessary to enjoy this program; athletes only need to bring sneakers, a water bottle and an item to be autographed (optional). The focus is on learning sports in an adaptive and non-competitive environment. Athletes will practice skills on the field, working one-on-one with volunteers from the Oneonta Outlaws. After the clinic, athletes will receive a medal and have an opportunity to take photos with and get autographs from the Outlaws players.
To round out the experience, athletes and their families/care providers are invited to stay for the Outlaws game. The EDD Memorial Fund will provide pizza and drinks for athletes and their families. As it turns out, the game is a free night sponsored by the Daily Star as part of their 125th Anniversary Celebration.
